Aloha Virginia Lee,
There is no 'service' provided by the USS Arizona Memorial to take photos such as you seek. You must obtain this in person.

Despite rumors to the contrary, the USS Arizona is 'stricken' from the US Navy. The deceased are really not on 'active duty'...However, it is an honored tradition in all the military that the spirit of the soldiers, sailors, and airmen killed in combat are 'still serving their country at their posts' and honors are rendered to their sacrifice.

Many years ago, a couple of reunion groups sponsored a request, led by former Navy Signalman John Hau, to render Special Honors to the deceased aboard USS Utah and USS Arizona.

HTH,
